Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant Honored With Multiple Awards at 2014 World Beer Cup

On Friday, April 11, Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant earned five prestigious awards from the Brewers Association – the not-for-profit trade group dedicated to promoting and protecting America’s small and independent craft brewers – at the 2014 World Beer Cup® Awards, including the highly coveted award for “World Beer Cup 2014 Champion Brewery and Brewmaster” in the Small Brewpub category, marking the third consecutive time Iron Hill has been named the best small brewpub in the world. The bi-annual competition featured 4,754 beers from 1,403 breweries representing 58 countries, with brewers from five continents, and voted on by an elite international panel of judges in 94 different styles of beer.

Already recognized across the brewing industry as a trailblazer in the craft beer movement, Iron Hill is now an international leader and standard bearer. The region’s fastest-growing collection of brewpubs was also presented with five individual awards at the conclusion of the Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America in Denver, Colorado. Gold medal awards were earned by head brewer Paul Rutherford, of Iron Hill Chestnut Hill, for The Golden Child in the American-Style Brett Beer category, as well as two awards for head brewer Bob Barrar, of Iron Hill Media: Russian Imperial Stout in the British-Style Imperial Stout category and Russian 2009 in the Aged Beer category. Bronze medal awards were earned by head brewer Tim Stumpf, of Iron Hill Phoenixville, for Bock in the Traditional German-Style Bock category and head brewer Chris LaPierre, of Iron Hill Maple Shade, for Honey Tripper in the Specialty Honey Beer category.

“We are honored and fortunate to have so many talented brewers working for us every day and continuing to push the boundaries of great and interesting beers,” says Director of Brewing Operations Mark Edelson. “To be recognized on a global scale, especially as the best small brewpub in the world, is really a testament to all the hard work our entire staff puts in on a daily basis.”

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.
